    Awesome selection of corals, $40 each!!

    North American Fish Breeders (NAFB) selection is awesome, I picked up a large, really nice Torch (Euphyllia glabrescens) about 6" across and 3" wide with about 6 heads as well as a beautiful purple Clam (Tridacna Crocea) about 5.5" long, both only $40 each!! I also picked up two Banggai Cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni) for $16 each. John (owner) was telling me that he gets a new shipment every week and all corals are $40 each. If you can make the trip down to Scarborough, NAFB had about 500 corals in stock as of yesterday! I could spend a lot of money there even at $40 a pop.

    Happy reefing,

    Maybe you could talk to them about becomming a sponsor of the site... I'm sure many of us would be interested.

    Get him to log onto AquariaCanada so he can look around. Then have him PM IJO (Ivan).

    I've been wondering why John hasn't become a sponsor here yet, could be that Aquarium pros limits him (just speculation). His stuff truly is all $40.00 per coral unless it's well over the XL size. Also it's $20 for any small frags or so I was told. Got myself a nice looking Duncan with 9-10 heads for $40 as well as a beautifull green on green with red long tentacled plate. He had hippopus clams last time I was there, I'm heading there tomorrow will post pics of what I get, so you guys can see the amazing stuff he carries.

    And best of all, you can bag your own stuff if you want, which makes coral selection much funner than just looking through glass and having someone else handle your coral.
    That's it for now, keep reef'n

    I see he has another shipment tonight.

    For those who have never been to one of John's shipment days,it's a site to see.

    Since I posted that,a large storm has come in.According to the weather network site it's not going to stop soon.

    Just wanted to point this out.Not a good night to be on the roads,especially if you have far to drive.
